** 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of James Brown, Vol. 3 James Brown & Friends (Marva Whitney, Lyn Collins, Bobby Byrd, and the JB's)
(Stone Cold Funk)
The 1970's James Brown Organization at their peak, featuring prime cuts from James Brown, Marva Whitney, Lyn Collins, Bobby Byrd, and the JB's. Simply stated, this CD is an instant party in a box. Put it on for a room full of people, roll back the rug, move anything breakable out of the way and let the party begin...
Now this is a good example of a MUST HAVE compilation that you won't have to pay an arm and a leg for. As I recall every single one of these songs were hits on the radio stations that used to exist down on the far right hand side of the dial. These are classic songs of the FUNK movement, which should have your booty shakin within seconds of when each song starts.
Listening to this CD brought back memories of buying some of these 45's the day after hearing them for the first time on the radio and how these 45's used to come out from the James Brown Organization damn near every two weeks. If you remember those days, or if you are too young to remember them (but would like to), then you can't go wrong with this just released compilation CD from Universal Music.
